National Construction Code 2022
The National Construction Code (NCC) 2022 contains the building and plumbing requirements for new or renovated buildings.
The NCC 2022 commenced on 1 May 2023, with a transition period to 1 October 2023 for the Modern Homes standards.
The NCC 2022 will ensure new homes are more energy efficient and meet accessibility standards. These standards reflect community expectations for modern homes.
For more information about the NCC 2022, visit the Australian Building Codes Board’s website.
The department has prepared a Guideline for applying section 37 of the Building Act 1975 (PDF, 220.53 KB) to assist building certifiers in applying transitional provisions.
